Food and service is great. Setting is pretty old and rustic, feels like it has been around for a very long time. Service was very attentive, knowledgeable on the menu and kept the right balance of small talk without being a constant presence. Food is expensive, but not more than the other steakhouses in town. You will spend over $200... More

Four of us dined here to celebrate my husband's birthday. We had reservations (a must) and were immediately seated. The atmosphere is perfect for a steak house, the menu is extensive and does feature other foods. We enjoyed a board appetizer with cheeses, meats, olives, etc. Our service was prompt and excellent and dinner was superb! All of us had... More

John and I have been to the Ringside several times! Every time it's been great! You must get the "rings" and then any steak!! Wine list is extensive and expensive! We usually have a cocktail before, and then a glass of wine with dinner! Ambiance is wonderful, as is wait staff!

Ringside Steakhouse is a comfortable place to have a delicious dinner with outstanding service if one is willing to pay the high price of an elegant dining experience. My wife and I enjoyed delicious onion rings, Caesar salad, wedge cobb salad, fillet mignon, and tasty garlic mashed potatoes, rice, plus vegetables. The wait staff was most attentive, and the manager... More

This visit to Ringside was a nostalgia trip to celebrate an anniversary at a place that had been our favorite when we lived in the city. Starting with martini's in the bar and moving to a comfy booth, we were served by a young man named Collin who made our evening even more special. We both had the twin filet... More

Ever since I moved to Portland, OR in November, 2004, Ringside Steakhouse has been one of my very favorite restaurants, in this city of many fabulous restaurants. Well, it even goes way back before that, because I was coming here, every 12 days, for many years, on my layovers with Amtrak (before I retired). Ringside Steakhouse was quite the favorite... More

Had heard good things about the place, service is great, ambiance as well, but the steak was overlooked and baked spinach had no flavor. Quality of the food doesn't match the price

Diets aside... sometimes you just need a good steak. This is the place to go -- old Portland holds up - even today. My favorite is to have dinner in the bar -- steak and a scotch.

We have been here many times. The menu service and quality are predictable and pleasant. It is a fine dining atmosphere and the food is always good, but not spectacular which it should be a little closer to with the very high prices. I always have a steak and it is always very good- just not as special as you... More

When visiting Portland I've eaten at the Ringside West many times. This time was a real disappointment. Steak had no flavor, was not worth anywhere near what we paid for it. Most likely will not go back.
